“They have seen better days”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We used to go here regularly but stopped when the subs got a little light on the meat. Went recently as we had out of town guests who decided we needed to go out and eat close by...now. The pizza was ok, not great. The salads have always been real good and remain so. But oh my gosh the pasta dishes were so bad. We could not tell the difference between the lasagna and the chicken parm. Each dish was a mass of sauce and cheese burying whatever the prime order was supposed to be. Totally camouflaged and looked sorta nice. The lasagna was so bland, noodles so limp, it was just a big blob of slop. Reminded me of jello that tried to look like good Italian food. If you are buying for size these dishes do ok, but taste is poor. These guys from Napoli know how to cook better, they sure used to. But the last few times we've visited all the owners do is collect money. That is ok but they need to supervise the food preparation. The final product has slipped big time. If all the folks in the area think this is good Italian/American style food, they need to travel a little farther. We're done!

Pizza is best in our neighborhood and ravioli is very fresh and kids love it there. Salads are very good and BYOW or BYOB so that is great too!!

“Good food, large portions, reasonable prices - what's not to love?”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We dine at Strapasta at least once a week. The owners and staff are friendly, the food is good and there's a large selection, so you can always find something you'll like. The pizza is excellent! It's like the Cheers of northern Baltimore County. You always see at least two or three people you know.

“Not Fancy, Just Great Food!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Strapasta is a Trattoria in the shopping center in Jacksonville, MD and is just what a Trattoria is supposed to be. a nice family atmosphere serving great food at very reasonable prices. If you are ever in the Jacksonville area, be sure and stop in for a great tasting meal. Remember, not fancy, just great food!
